UPDATE: I did some internet research over the weekend and found a reference to placing a piece of electrical tape on the 5 o'clock position connector on the trailer's plug. This is because some late model vehicles, like Audi, do not turn on the trailer plug unless trailer lights are sensed. The 5 o'clock connector is for the brake lights and the 90250 does not want anything connected to it's output at the 5 o'clock while attempting to pair the remote with it. So, with the 5 o'clock position "disconnected" and the trailer plug attached to the back of the 90250, my Audi sensed the trailer lights and I was able to pair my remote.
I very carefully followed the instructions, multiple times, with two separate vehicles, both with fully functional and tested connectors, with no luck pairing. On eTrailer I found the instructions below, which worked the first time. For a $250-$300 controller, for which ~$200 of the cost is for the wireless, it is completely inexcusable for the manufacturer to supply such stupidly inadequate instructions. I think the issue is almost ubiquitous for vehicles with LED tail lights, which are now common.
Thanks to Mike at eTrailer for the following:
1. Connect the RF unit to the tow vehicle, but do not plug the trailer into the RF unit.
2. Plug the hand held remote into the 12 volt power port (cigarette lighter).
3. Turn the gain to minimum by rolling the power wheel towards the cord of the hand held. The display may show just a flashing .n.c. - not the 0.0 mentioned in the instructions. You MAY NOT see 0.0 at this step.
4. Press and hold both the boost and manual buttons at the same time. The display will start counting down from P5 to PA. When the display shows PA, release both buttons and apply the brake pedal within ONE second. The display should change to a flashing 0.0. The control is now paired.
5. Set the Power Knob to greater than 0.0. Display will flash n.c. (not connected).
6. Connect trailer 7-way connector to the power module. Display will now be .c (connected)
As you may have read in many other reviews, we initially had difficulty getting the remote and the controller to pair. Turns out this was not the Tekonsha unit's fault. We had tried and tried and tried to get the RF remote to pair with the controller. The pairing process is a bit complicated but not all that difficult but three very bright individuals (two were engineers) together spent two hours working on this problem with no success. Then we checked the Pin 4 voltage from the Caddy... NOTHING. Sigh. Panic. Was this Caddy with Tow Package somehow incompatible with Electric Trailer Brakes?!!!
Not Cadillac's fault, either. Apparently there was a 40a fuse blown sometime in this vehicle's distant past. Replaced the fuse, got voltage at the brake pin and in less than 30 seconds we had the remote paired with the controller.
The Tekonsha pairing process described in the included manual is correct with one exception: we never got the "0.0" readout but that doesn't really matter. All that mattered was seeing the "countdown" in the display go to "PA", hit the car's brake pedal and VOILA, success.
Lesson learned: check for 12v (or more) at the Brake pin on the 7-pin connector when you apply the car's brakes. If you get that, you will be able to pair flawlessly.

When I checked the price for the exact same unit on Amazon, the price was half of that, so I bought the controller off of Amazon. When I went to pick up my new trailer, I brought my cordless drill with a socket attachment. I installed the controller in five minutes (four self tapping bolts that I drilled a pilot hole for to make life easier) in the pick up zone of the RV shop and offered the RV shop some not so kind hyphenated words. Pairing and the setting up the sensitivity of the controller was even easier.
I am very pleased with the purchase.
5 Year Update:
I've been using the same brake controller for 5 camping seasons now and about to go into the 6th. I've had it on 3 different trailers and 2 different tow vehicles. I've logged over 15000 km of towing using this brake controller and have never had a single issue. I was concerned about durability when I first purchased it. Well no more. This thing is rock solid.
I like that I don't have an ugly break controller in the cab of my vehicle plus I can easily move it to my next tow vehicle.
In use with a ~3500 lbs hybrid trailer being pulled behind my SUV. Instructions were easy to follow and setup was a breeze.
When mounting it to your trailer keep in mind that if you are eventually going to mount a box across the tongue of the trailer, to mount the receiver unit low enough for the box to clear, or else you have to remount it.
and can tow with my car or brothers truck. Thanks for a great product idea Tekonsha
